South African ancestors


Much of what I have about my South African ancestors is from a book published privately by D R Scogings, "The BOSHOFF family". The book documents the arrival of Willem Hendrik BOSHOFF from the Netherlands at the Cape on 18 March 1741. His descendants link most South African families - below is a list of the main branches of cousins I have added to my tree.

South African ancestors are as follows:

1828:1828 BADENHORST\Graaff-Reinet, South Africa/Graaff-Reinet, South Africa
1742:1742 BARNARD\Cape Colony, South Africa/Cape Colony, South Africa
1710:1987 BOSHOFF\Gelderland, The Netherlands/unknown
1680:1736 CORDIER\France/Cape Colony, South Africa
1786:1786 DE JAGER\Cape Colony, South Africa/Cape Colony, South Africa
1680:1680 MARTINET\France/France
